Alyssa Rosenberg of Lexington High School submitted an editorial to StudentDiscourse.com focusing on Britney Spears former dual identity. Rosenberg writes, “Whether she is aware of it or not, Ms. Spears once seemed like the polar opposite of a feminist. Her performances sold her body more than her songs. Her lyrics sometimes seemed to speak of sexual violence and domination-‘Hit me, baby’? ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’? Often, Ms. Spears seemed the perfect product of the majority-male music industry, an eminently purchase-able fantasy. Her public claims of virginity only bolstered this impression-her innocence gave her a fascinating power, suggested an untapped sexual potential that was ready to be exploited.”
